NY The Nanny State: New Bill Will Force Parents to Take Parenting Class or Their Children Will Fail Grade School

alg_senator-ruben-diaz-sr-621x330A bill has been filed in the New York State Senate to require parents of grade school children to take four parenting classes or the children would not be allowed to enter the seventh grade.

The bill was filed by Sen. Ruben Diaz Sr. (D-Bronx). According to comments Diaz made to US News and World Report,

Diaz says the parenting classes need to be mandatory because many parents don’t come to optional parent-teacher conferences.

The bill would require the New York State Education Department to establish 12 parenting courses – of which parents would select four to attend.

Diaz envisions the classes helping parents deal with issues such as sexual orientation, bullying and suicide, and the bill specifically mandates a course on physical, emotional and sexual abuse.

Employers would be required to provide one day of paid leave annually to allow parents to attend.

Diaz says parents who feel capable of raising their children without state-provided instruction shouldn’t be upset by the proposal.

    The bald-faced arrogance of politicians is unending. At what point will good people stand up and tell them to sit down and shut the hell up?

    • Deborah G

      They’ll tell them with their feet walking . Out of this Hell hole of a state

      • Sam

        Darn, wouldn’t that impact the cash flow into the state government? Do they care?

  • Jr1776

    Just Obey ! you don’t know what’s best for you, or your kid’s.

    • Snoopy

      Screw you AND him!

    • Jr1776

      I was being sarcastic !

  • Deborah G

    F Cuomo and his band of Commie b-tards. I am sick and tired to the point of screaming. OFFER classes if you must but to demand people attend if there is no court order because of neglect or abuse is TYRANNY> This comes from a man[Cuomo] who lives with his girlfriend and takes his young children to see the GAY pride parade with perverts dancing down the street in thongs. YOU trust HIS judgement on what good parenting encompasses?

    • garysvent

      ˙He left his judgment in his other pants.

    • Beachhawk

      This isn’t Cuomo. This is purely Mayor De Blasio and the arrogant radicals in the Democrat Party. It’s the same bunch who want to retire the Bill of Rights because they find that it interferes with their left-wing agenda. They think they know better about how you and the rest of us should live our lives.

      • David Foss

        Yeah, they want to tell us how we should think, but can’t even take care of their own business!

    • David Foss

      No, and I don’t trust the government to even take care of government business! The so-called President did promise us change. Some of us even trusted the government to make sure an American was in the oval office! Well that sure got flushed down the toilet!

  • Jr1776

    You need a licence to fish, so take it a step further, before you have kid’s, should you.

    • Sam

      Don’t give them any ideas! They will have a license fee for these tests. Just more ways to SUCK the money out of the taxpayers.

      • Carrie Barton

        Isn’t funny, how these homeless people need to show ID to police officers, but you discriminate if you need one to vote.

        • winki

          First thing they wanted to see today when I went to vote was my picture ID.

          • Carrie Barton

            That’s funny. It is illegal for them to do that.

          • winki

            Not in Texas. And I didn’t mind a bit.

          • Carrie Barton

            I was just wondering, you hear about these other states trying to do that but are stopped by the courts. How is your state able to do that? Also it seems that the Democrats are trying to take you guys over.

            I am tired of ca. and even though I own my home I am so tired of paying all these taxes.

          • winki

            I’ve aslways had to show either a voter registration card or a picture ID. I guess Texas just expects it and I just do it. And I hope the Democrats don’t succeed. We are fighting them.

          • Carrie Barton

            Ca. I have to show proof that this is my address. How funny is that I think we should have to also. Keep fighting those Democrats off.

          • winki

            It just seems strange to me that a person, regardless of their situation, has to show an ID everywhere they go or whatever they do, but they complain that it’s too difficult to show one for voting. I just don’t understand what the problem is and how it’s “discriminating against blacks or poor people”.

          • Carrie Barton

            It is not discriminating. They just want people to vote that are illegal. Some states said that they would pay for these people that are to poor, to get ID’s. There are more black people voting then there was 10 yrs ago.

  • TyrannyOfEvilMen

    This makes perfect sense for New Yorkers. Clearly, they are no longer capable of independent rational thought. They desperately need the nanny state.

  • disqus_nwUSNgo6P3

    Let me quote Fred Sanford, “Big Dummy”.

    • herdzcatz

      Brilliant. NY govt? Not so much. Good ol’ Mr. Sanford would have done a far better job than this bunch.

  • Deborah G

    DIAZ should envision his black race to start taking responsibility for their actions like leaving fatherless kids wherever they sow their sperm then expecting welfare on the backs of Taxpayers to raise them. Target the Blacks and Hispanic for their irresponsibility in his OWN district and leave the rest of us the hell alone.

    • Searcher98

      Deborah, no slight to your comment. Just didn’t know whare else to post this.

      If you don’t know who the father is; who is the male “parent” then who takes the class(es)?

      • Deborah G

        Aw just grab any one of them …..if you can catch them LOL

  • Carrie Barton

    People stupid! Gov’t smart! LOL!!

    • Sam

      More like government in avalanche mode and cannot recover from it.

      • Carrie Barton

        Sounds right!

  • omega2

    The only ones needing PARENT TRAINING ARE THE NEW YORK STATE LEGISLATURE IN DOING GOVT. BUSINESS AND LEAVING THE SOCIAL DEPARTMENT TO THE TRUE LEADERS OF THE STATE! IT IS QUITE EVIDENT THAT YOU ALL DONT REMEMBER WHAT YOU WERE ELECTED TO DO SO WHY DONT ALL OF YOU JUST RUN HOME TO MOMMIE AND SEE IF SHE CAN STRAIGHTEN OUT YOUR LITTLE BRAINS TO REAL LIFE HAPPENINGS!

    • Marlin208

      They don’t want to stop the spending so they come up with crap like this so you think they are doing something.
      Good God, when will it stop.

      • Dave

        It will stop, when people start voting with bullets instead of ballots.

        • Marlin208

          The elections are a complete fraud now. I mean when you have more votes than registered voters and no one finds that odd, this country is done for.

    • jmortensen

      Please define “Leaders” .. I have a hard time finding any ! .. more like the school yard bully has now become a politician ..

    I wonder just how far THIS idiot has his head up his ass???
    That is the biggest crock of crap I have heard since Custer said he was gonna surround all those Indians!
    FIRE this idiot while the kids still have a chance! Let him push his “Gay Agenda” on HIS kids if he likes (Though I would much rather see them in a decent Christian home), but leave OTHER folks to raise their own!

  • roy lembke

    ahahahahahahah – good for New Yorkers – they deserve what they elect into office.

  • Marlin208

    Whenever Republicans get into power the Dems go wild saying they will take all your rights away. Seems to me that the Dems are the ones doing it all the time.
    Holy cow, what is next, take the kids out of the crib and raise them without the parents.
    Heck if that be the case why not make sure there are two parents in the home also.
    I think that is what is needed.

    • Harold

      Don’t give them any Ideas, their to stupid to think by themselves

      That is right called world of indoctrination and you get them back after they are determined to be loyal and not to you but to them! The kids become their brainwashed eyes and ears!

    • garysvent

      But they leave you with all the rights to deviancy — and even invent new ones. Soon it will be illegal NOT to be deviant.

      • David Foss

        YOU GOT THAT RIGHT!

    • Deborah G

      Accordin to Communist thinking kids never belong to their parents they exist for the Commune i.e.state

  • joshuasweet

    and the common core ideas spread now to teaching the parents that homosexuality transgendered actions are acceptable

  • Dave

    Keep on pushing mot#3rf#ck3rs………..

  • Hotnike

    A Mexican Senator in New York. Check him out, Is he here legally? Oh, oh. I am a racist. TOUGH!! Actually, I think all people in New York are primates. The way they vote it is obvious they have no brains.

    • Marlin208

      Good place to go squatch hunting.

    • Deborah G

      HEY I am born and raised here. NOT ALL New Yorkers are Primates or Liberals we’re just outnumbered

      • Hotnike

        Sorry. My statement stands. Time to move??

        • Deborah G

          We have been trying to sell our home as soon as we do we will be down South BUT It makes me very sad because I love where I live. It is truely beautiful. I have built the perfect place over 30 years of love. NOW? We can’t afford to stay and we don’t like the liberal Communist takeover of this gorgeous State. Amazing how a few stupid people voting for soemthing like this to be destroyed and replaced with a welfare state is beyond my comprehension.

          • Hotnike

            Deborah G, I really do feel for you and I am sorry about your situation. It is sad that people who vote for these ‘liberal Communist’ love to live on other people’s money. They don’t realize that this can’t last forever. I am sorry for my primate comment. I guess there are still a few people like yourself in New York that do have brains. GOOD LUCK. You will need it and if the rest of us don’t wake up soon we will need GOOD LUCK also.

          • Deborah G

            Not a problem I know you have the right heart. The reality is there are many good conservatives in NY but we are so outnumbered with the unions and illegals as well as the city bringing us all down. I live on a beautiful little farm we made ourselves my usband and I. We have eveything we want and need but they are killing us. We are taxed to the max, our electric rates are the highest in the nation because of the taxes used to fund hamdouts, we have cigarette and booze taxes like nowhere else. Everything is to fund their Commie, handouts liberal agenda. The illegals run rampant here. If I could transplant my beautiful little place I would but we have to sell. What was poonce affordable and self sufficient has been taxed and fee’d to where we can longer afford living here.

  • jmortensen

    better yet, .. all politicians must be required to take Constitution 101 before they are allowed to take office ..

    • Dave

      After they take office, every 30 days, require them to submit to a lie detector test while strapped in an electric chair. The needle on the polygraph would be the switch for the chair.

      • [email protected]

        GREAT IDEA — BEST I’VE HEARD

        • Dave

          Thank You!

          • Deborah G

            would you be interested in running for higher office? LOL great idea

      • jmortensen

        Do you think we can produce enough electricity to do the job ?

        • Deborah G

          Ask Obama for a GREEN solution LOL

        • Dave

          I think so. This should also be done to ALL gov’t employees. It would require a lot of KWH the first month, but less with each succeeding month.

      • Deborah G

        Love it

    • garysvent

      They should also be required to pass the test on the Constitution, which would send most of them to the welfare lines.

    • Deborah G

      YUP start there

    • Jessi

      jmortensen, I echo the comments of those that agree with your suggestion that ALL politicians, at every level – municipal, county, state, tribal and federal, be required to take at a minimum a Constitution 101 course. However, I think that potential candidates should be required to show proof they have taken and successfully completed the course to be eligible to register to run for any political office. Before a certain “demographic” claims that requirement isn’t “fair” and/or would “disenfranchise” potential candidates I would submit to them the course is available to anyone who has an interest ~at NO COST~ through Hillsdale College. The following is the link to Hillsdale College registration page: https://online.hillsdale.edu/constitution101/info

      • jmortensen

        Absolutley

  • Tom

    I believe that anyone running for public office should attend
    classes on the Constitution, Bill of Rights, and the Federalist Papers and made
    to take and pass a test before their name is placed on the ballot because an
    ignorant politician is far more dangerous to our society than even a legal gun
    owner.

    • [email protected]

      I am with you on that one — I think a class action lawsuit should be taken against bloomepants and the gov. since both have violated their oath of office. I would like to see a young lawyer who wants to make a name for himself sue the $hit out of both of them and then continue on to obama , piglousie, dirty hairy and a whole lot of others including RINOS.

    • violater1

      How about a test of morality/ ethics and intellect in the areas of common sense not in the book learned knowledge included along with the above mentioned by Tom!

    • Sam

      That would mean they know “how to read” and “comprehend”. They probably wear loafers because they cannot tie their own shoes….

    • Barbara66

      You are so right! Most would fail immediately!!!

  • pysco

    At what point and time do these idiots think they are better at raising children than the parents, look at the conditions of state and federal governments and these people have the gall to think they are better…….. I would go along with the bill if there is a rider that all politicians are required to take courses on the Constitution at least twice a year.

  • PatrioticInfidelInPA

    All I can say is F NY. Tell Cuomo to kiss my a$$. I bet there will be a rapid exodus of that hell hole. Believe me, as a parent, there is no rule book and it is a learn-as-u-go type of thing and we are raising our daughter based on Doug Giles book. Bite me Cuomo

    • Deborah G

      I agree. Doug is a real Christian Father with common sense.

      • Rosie46

        They will not allow that. You will be required to raise your children based on their progressive ideiology that we so much of now. Just more indoctrination.

        • Deborah G

          They can try but NY is losing people daily. I’ll be gone as soon as my place sells too.

          • Rosie46

            Good luck and God speed.

          • Deborah G

            Thank you Rosie. I am very sad to have to give up my beautiful life for Communists but we can’t afford their redistibution of wealth any more. The illegals have taken over , the welfare and state benfits are billed to us. School taxes through the roof to educate the brats. SO sickening

          • Rosie46

            That is true in so many communities. The illegals are costing us in education, welfare, medical care, law enforcment costs, jobs, illegal tax refunds, identity theft, and the feds will do nothing to stop the invasion of our country. I live in Nevada and the school costs and overcrowding are awful. But the Dems want amnesty to buy votes.

          • Deborah G

            The illegals and the Domcrats chasing their votes have overun this country, Biden saying they are “already” Americans someone needs to put duct tape over his stupid mouth

          • Rosie46

            A long time ago — recall his mouth got our Seal Team 6 killed.

          • Deborah G

            I think he orchastrated it

  • JohnnyC

    This is exactly what you get for voting wrong, or worse not voting!

  • colsooonscoorner

    Sounds like idiocy to me. 4 classes aren’t going ot fix bad parenting. Bad parents won’t learn, ’cause they haven’t learned it yet. Absolute staupidity! You can’t fix stupid, as bill clinton used to say (no caps).

    • Deborah G

      They’ll just let their kids stop going to school at grade 6 yup that’ll teach em…. Morons begat morons

  • Azsteve53

    This is another example of why being a progressive means having a mental disorder. Unbelievable nanny state control, education sponsored fascism, they think they own your children anyway

  • Jason Newsome

    When an opponent declares, “I will not come over to your side,” I calmly say, “Your child belongs to us already… What are you? You will pass on. Your descendants, however, now stand in the new camp. In a short time they will know nothing else but this new community.”

  • LTsiao

    It is very telling what classes would be mandatory. Especially the class on gender orientation. More propaganda to promote the gaystapo lifestyle. More classes to teach parents not to teach or discipline children. Sure, that will work. What will they do to homeschool families? Force them into these classes too, and force them to send children to public school? That is next. Vote the dems out.

  • Phil McMorrow

    Punish the innocent because of the lack of action by the parents? Only a ceryogorf idiot could come up with that idea.

  • URKiddinMee

    Does this mandate include all the “Baby Daddys” of the welfare brood mares?

  • reggiec

    If the classes we required for all parents receiving welfare to receive welfare I I would agree. But you cannot tie it to kids moving up in school. Then the classes should not be structured as suggested but to teach: The importance of the traditional family, parent involvement in doing homework with their kids and the dangers of multi-generational welfare.

  • Charles

    Looks like ny is coming up with a mandatory pre-high school drop out bill.. What else will a stupid liberal come up with; maybe I shouldn’t ask…

  • violater1

    This is indoctrination to communist manifesto 101 folks and what better place to start than the cuomo Commie first State of the nation! Where Welfare draw s billions of our tax dollars to be misused by the slug Smug Sons of Bitches of New York Government! They were bailed out to the tune of 400 million dollars years ago when Cuomo was Mayor of New York (correct me if I am wrong)! Now the crooked gambino family of mafia or one of the fine groups of Criminals from which cuomo was spawned finds another way to steal more tax dollars and never even attempt to pay back said moneys! NYC is filled with gutter slum trash and cuomo and bloomingidiotberg and weiner are just examples of the rats that are spawned in the subway gutters and sewer system!

  • James

    Well this is just the first step. I fully expect them to expand on this to make it a law that as soon as the child is old enough to start Kindergarten, the state will take them from you and raise them in a boarding school until they are thoroughly brain washed communist liberals. I do believe that this was predicted a long time ago, but I cannot remember who it was that predicted this. We all thought that he was crazy at that
    time.

  • Shears_of_Atropos

    Today: Plantation New York. Tomorrow: Plantation Amerika!

  • The_Hiking_Guy

    When is someone going to put people like this out of their misery???

    • winki

      You mean put them out of OUR misery. Sooooo glad I don’t live in New York or California!

  • foxxybey

    New York Plantation of slave of every race and color, hope it falls in the ocean and good Bye Nazi state.

  • borg

    Are.they trying to.cause parents to lose their jobs?

    • winki

      Just what employers need on top of the new minimum wage is to provide a paid day off for all of their employees with grade school students. Sounds like some more employee pink slips to me.

  • Phil Bronner

    There needs to be some torches and pitchforks in NY!!!! Their politicians are totally out of control!!!!!! arrogant elitists…..

  • Shears_of_Atropos

    OK, maybe not PC, but: Does this apply to illegals, too? Or only white American Citizens?

  • PatCindyCunningham

    Ha! Ha! New York! What do you expect when you let Liberals run a muck? What I want to know is the parents who flunk and are Junkies or Criminals in some way or other, what happens then? Will they be passed over? is this just for Political expediency? Doesn’t matter any way you look at it, you loose. Once nobody shows up, the stupid Liberal politicians will go back to the drawing board.

    • garysvent

      Actually, it doesn’t matter, because the kids aren’t doing any better than 6th grade anyway, no matter how long they attend public schools in NY. So parents, don’t go to the classes. They less they ‘learn’ in these black holes of progressive perversion, the better prepared for real life they’re going to be.

      • Evan White

        Answer: Kids leave public schools and go to Charter or Christian schools or even better, Homeschool

      • PatCindyCunningham

        What New York is doing is not being satisfied with indoctrinating the Kids, they also want to indoctrinate the parents.

  • Sam

    Did this FOOL go to a one day parenting class himself? Where do these fools get off on making a parenting course mandatory for citizens? Aside, isn’t some of this stuff provided in home-economics classes? Typical democrap……

    • garysvent

      Obviously his mother didn’t go to parenting class. Or, maybe she did, and it was run by an idiot progressive.

  • got243kids

    You think this is off-the-charts outrageous just wait until they take our guns.
    They promised transparency… this is their transparency. And it’s in your face.

  • Ed

    More of the NY NANNY STATE – The state knows best and one size fits all just like common core education!!! Just more socialist/communist BS

  • garysvent

    They don’t like conservatives in NY, so they leave in droves. They don’t like big gulp drinkers in NY, so they leave in droves. They don’t like sugar users in NY, so they leave in droves. They don’t like the accomplished wealthy in NY, so they leave in droves. They absolutely hate gun owners in NY, so they leave in droves.

    Now they don’t like parents? Will they leave in droves?

    Pretty soon the only people living in NY will be people like the idiot that introduced this bill, and since he doesn’t work for a living, (and surely public ‘servants’ don’t grow their own food), the entire state will soon be depopulated, everyone starved out.

    Then the normal can move back in.

    • Evan White

      This is a fast track to poverty. There are smart minds in NYC but if kids are forced to be drop outs those bright minds will never show their tallent

  • Evan White

    So in general the nanny state suports middle school drop outs? If kids ain’t allowed to go past 7th grade this is a fast trac to poverty cause you can’t work with out a diploma from high school

  • Evan White

    LIBERALS, COME WITH YOUR WORST! YOU CAN’t TAKE ME WITHOUT A BLOODY FIGHT! YOU CAN’t SILENCE ME FROM SPEAKING MY MIND AND WORSHIPING My SAVIOR JESUS CHRiST!! YOU CAN’T DESTROY THE FAITH OF CHRISTIANS! AND YOU WILL BURN IN HELL UNLESS YOU CONVERT! SO I SUGEST YOU FLEE THE WRATH OF THE LAMB OF GOD!!

  • sandman

    On one hand I do not like this idea, but on the other hand we have children being raised by foolish incompetents who should have NEVER had children anyway! I mean you have to have a license to drive a car, but not to have children!

  • Sean Murray

    That is a crock of crap.

  • Deb Scott

    why do politicians who can’t get their real jobs done think they can do parenting job for us-

  • Frank W Brown

    You gotta be shitting me!!!!

  • merryinfidel

    New York has become a cesspool of liberalism and multiculturalism. Their left wing entitlement garbage is stinking up the rest of our nation and the odor can now be detected as far away as Alaska and Hawaii! The democratic machine in NY probably can’t even define the term “good parenting” so how the hell are they going to teach it to others? The “Do as I say, not as I do” mentality doesn’t cut it. We don’t need the government, (especially those clueless idiots in NY) telling us how to raise our children, and we certainly don’t need them spreading their idea of a “socialist Utopia” to the rest of America.

  • Linda

    People of NY, wise up and get these liberal wise asses out of your government and out of your life.

  • Beachhawk

    My God! Is there no limit to what the control-freak Democrats want? Does tis arrogant s.o.b. really think that some bureaucrat working for the state of New York knows what a new parents need to know about raising their children. New York state government is totally incapable of dealing with their own problems. How do they expect to teach parents how to deal with their problems. And if the parents are noncompliant, the state is going to punish the children. The hubris of this Diaz clown is just plain staggering. Is there anyone out there who thinks this is a good idea? Welcome to the Peoples’ Republic of New York!

  • Dave

    …And the “left” wonders why so many people are saying we are headed into a “new” revolution. Many ‘conservatives’ have been saying for years that the “State” has been trying to indoctrinate people into believing that the government is really the ‘mother and father’ to all our children and that only the government knows how to raise our children. That is what Stalin, Hitler and Mao said to their citizens, too. This is a blatant attempt to morally bankrupt the family, breakup the “family” and to de-value the very meaning of the concept of “family”…and as always…a ‘liberal’ introduces a bill like this. IF this is allowed to continue, without strong opposition from ALL the citizens, we WILL become the very thing we fought against in WW2 and the “Cold War” that followed WW2…in other words…our Country will become socialist, communist or fascist along with ALL the loss of freedom, fear and the horrors associated with those forms of government.

  • mike r

    None of those issues are discussed during conferences.

  • John W Tobin

    FIGURES!!! A DEMOCRAT from NEW YORK. WHY AM I NOT ONE BIT SURPRISED???

  • gfsomsel

    I suggest that legislators take a course before they are allowed to vote on any legislation. This should include: The Federalist Papers, the Declaration of Independence, the Articles of Confederation, the Constitution of the United States, Democracy in America.

  • Micheal Martin

    This guy is a complete moron … what of the words “Optional Parent-Teacher Conferences” does he not understand …. what a baffoon!!!!!

  • guestimate

    The ability to have sex/propagate doesn’t guarantee that two people know how to be proper parents, even flies do the former. Would four state-sponsored classes save the state money down the road? You have to consider who these classes are being targeted to, obviously the state is concerned that some parents aren’t taking an active role in their children’s lives. At what point in time do parents learn proper parenting skills? …or should children just be victimized by incompetence?

  • Sandra Parrott

    I think New York should be able to pass any idiot bill they please. If the people of NY are electing these nut jobs, they deserve the kind of government they get. Just do it NY, and leave the rest of us alone.

  • millicent

    Well actually that is not a bad idea. I would present the bill with some changes. They take the parenting classes BEFORE they can have kids. If they fail the test at the end of the class both parties get fixed. They can have dogs, cats, gerbils or whatever, but no kids. The blame for bad kids goes to everything but the parents, who raised them to be idiots.

  • dan from ohio

    this is what you get when you elect a communist for mayor

  • Ralph

    What part of the word “Optional” does Diaz not understand? I think it is time to impeach these haters of the US Constitution and freedom. Actions speak louder then their denials and I’ve learned to want to see if the dictators of the world would indeed make these bastards feel welcome because they are cut from the same cloth?

    Certain that Diaz (Dem Dimwit) is an credentialed Marxist authority on both education and parenthood. Of course what is really needed in NY is mandatory Marxism classes for all voters to prepare them for the welfare polls to make certain they hate all wage earners and tax payers.

    Someone needs to give the Communist Democrat Senator Ruben Diaz a one way ticket to a Zyclon B shower party.

  • mogul264

    The Nazis of New York want to ensure the Biblical saying about the ;sins of the father transferring to their sons’ remains true! What arrogance! Sure, there are poor parents out there, but these clowns want to punish ALL parents for a few bad ones! WOW!

    The next law on the NY Democrat agenda will tell you when and for how long a time you can use the bathroom. ” Seig Heil” NY – The new NAZI paradise.!!

    Well, that does it. Guess it is time to fire the government en toto; to shut down the department of miseducation; and to rescue our kids from the public school government indoctrination system, emptying the schools out completely and putting the teachers, school administrators, school bus drivers, and the entire school board and teacher unions groups on permanent unpaid leave… Believe me, we and all of our kids will be far better off if we did this.

  • charles dickens

    This idiot has obviously overlooked the fact that he has forced his race to only attend school for seven yrs., while the rest of the children have to attend 12. Wait, this has been happening for decades and it just now came to light with this doufus!

  • AlThompson

    More BS libtard indoctrination!

  • 1_Eddie_1

    Now that is a switch, holding the children responsible for their parents lack of action. Way to go Senator Ruben Diaz! Then what is next? Are you then going to arrest the parents because their children aren’t in school since you won’t let them advance?

  • robocop33

    BS! So many kids today do not have two parents and the one that works can’t take the time off, and one day is not enough, to attend this “State School”. I am not sure that I want the State telling me how to raise my kids either as they are rampant with those who wish to turn our kids into good little followers of Government ideas and standards, period. Yes some parents could do well learning some parenting skills but most are perfectly fine and know how to raise their kids without State interferance. This is nothing more than an indoctranation for parents to better help the indoctranation of the children by the State educational system. Parents would be better off sending their kids to private schools where they really learn about reading and comprehension, mathamatics, history, and science and not the kind that the Public Schools teach now.

    ————Diaz says parents who feel capable of raising their children without
    state-provided instruction shouldn’t be upset by the proposal.——–

    Ah, the old “If you’re not doing anything wrong you have nothing to worry about……” ploy of the totalitarian leftists.

    Hey, I have an idea? How about an Elected Official Class that teaches them their responsibilities AND most importantly their limits and restraints. If they don’t pass 12 classes a year they lose their benefits and pension…….

    What?

    If you’re sure of your abilities as a politician serving the people, you have nothing to worry about.

    • Party every day panda style

      Great point.

  • Del

    If conservatives have a good idea that could solve a problem, They suggest
    you try it to see if it will work.
    If Democrats have an idea, They pass it into law and demand you do it or you
    will be severely punished. Even if the idea is a bad one.

  • Billie

    I purpose a bill requiring Senators and Congressmen to take HUMAN BEING classes.

    HOMESCHOOL People… the state has NO CLUE

  • Steve Harmon

    Wow!! Good luck NY. You voted for this, now enjoy.

    HOME SCHOOL. Do not contribute to government indoctrination of your children

  • Ron Brueske

    Let me get this straight:

    America’s Government is totally Incapable of speaking the TRUTH.
    America’s Government is totally Incapable of Managing OUR Money in an HONEST manner.
    America’s Government is totally Incapable of SECURING our Borders.
    America’s Government is totally Incapable of FUNCTIONING in the manner that is PROSCRIBED by the Constitution.

    NOW these bozos that have ruined America’s Government and driving America itself into RUIN, will FORCIBLY TEACH parents how to be Parents? Really? This will not end well.

    • Combat Veteran Seabee

      They will be incapable of sustaining the family unit!

  • armydadtexas

    When will the citizens of New York stand up and tell their politicians to shove it up their arrogant ARSES.

  • Mary Brown

    Parents need to remove all their kids from public schools, then they lose funding and go under.

  • RiseToProsperity

    All the people who VOTED for this guy need to be taking some kind of classes!!

  • RiseToProsperity

    The government can’t even balance a BUDGET – what makes them think they are qualified to teach parents how to raise children?? If our government REALLY and TRULY wanted to help parents do a better job raising their children, all they’d have to do is give every new parent a copy of the book, “Grooming The Next Generation for Success” by Dani Johnson. Bingo, problem solved!! In just a few years, our whole nation would be transformed into one of strength, wisdom, integrity, pride and prosperity. We would not only have children who honored and respected others, but it would also have the same impact on every adult who read it.
